For a reconstruction of this phase space, the detector systems have to be synchronized. This reconstruction can be used for example for studies of the microbunching instability which occurs if the interaction of the bunch with its own radiation leads to the formation of substructures on the longitudinal bunch profile. These substructures can grow rapidly – leading to a sawtooth-like behavior of the bunch. At KARA, we use a fast-gated intensified camera for energy spread studies, Schottky diodes for coherent synchrotron radiation studies as well as electro-optical spectral decoding for longitudinal bunch profile measurements. For a synchronization, a synchronization scheme is used which compensates for hardware delays. In this paper, the different experimental setups and their synchronization are discussed and first results of synchronous measurements presented.
